Road Trip to TX

Thursday (August 18, 2011) we left about 5:00 AM to go to Texas to pick-up 25 goats (13 kids + 12 does) from a dairy. Here are some pictures from the trip. This was actually the second trip down there (we made a trip about 2 weeks ago), but last time I forgot the camera.

It was a tiring, but fun 5 hour drive (one-way) . . . .

Two blowouts on the way there . . . not good. It put us a few hours behind scedule.

This is ugly . . . compared to where we live with lots of pine trees.

With the current dry conditions, there have been several fires locally (by us) in Oklahoma and in Texas.

It's already looking like this (trees loosing leaves), and it is only August!

Finally, pine trees! There is one place on the route we went that has lots of pine trees, but besides that there's none in sight - only flatland, and sometimes rolling hills with brush and oak trees.

Brown and dry

Hay . . . one desperately needed thing in Oklahoma and Texas

Finally there!

We loaded up the goats, and headed back home in our truck with no working air-conditioner . . . thankfully there was a cloud cover.

The herd of cattle that are always there.

Close to home! There was a fire recently (pictured above).

Home in sight!!!!!!!
Praise the Lord for keeping us safe, and blessing us with more animals!
